    Henrik Lundqvist Will Return to Rangers Post Playing Career

    In an interview with Johan Rylander of the Goteborgs-Posten, the 38-year-old goaltender revealed that he expects make a return to the Rangers in some capacity after he retires from the NHL.

    Ill be a part of the Rangers for the rest of my life, in one way or another, he said, according to a Swedish translation. Both I and the Rangers have been clear about that. Thats how it will be.

    Asked to clarify if that meant he had a job with the Rangers in the future, Lundqvist confirmed that was the plan.

    It will be the role they want it to be, he responded. I dont know if the role will be small or if there will be something more. It is further ahead. Its all about timing. Its just not now.

    I feel that I will somehow be connected to Rangers forever after so many years and all the people I got to know in the club, from the owner on down.

    rightfully so, happy to see this. I doubt and hope he will not be gifted something he's completely not qualified for. Give him something he can work his way up from and that's a win for all imo.

    Allaire isn't old enough for that to be a consideration IMO. I'd imagine he returns as a special assistant to the GM like Drury did en route to a long-term front office role or, if he plans on moving his family back to Europe, head of European Player Development.

    Whatever it is, I’m glad he will be back. I’m also glad to see there isn’t any animosity there.

    Goalie coach isn’t GQ enough. Think executive. Nice suit and that hair

    I'd imagine it'd be more like an Adam Graves style role and a less technical, daily involvement in the hockey operations type gig.
    Just a hunch really.

    It's pretty obvious he will become the team's fashion consultant.

    Those goalie types...they stick together! He's gonna be JD's assistant!

    Seriously, I'm glad he'll be back. Hank was the face of this franchise for a long time, and NY loves him back just as much.

    Maybe we can finally be rid of Glen Andersson. I never understood why he was always the alumni they had at Rangers fan functions. They are finally bringing Mattaeu into the mix, he was at the last hockey skate my kids did with the Rangers.
